Gailen Mapes84,165Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera T-Z - 18 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-18 10:19:48162001

Gailen Mapes74,155Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera T-Z - 22 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-12-22 11:46:02151000

We saw many waterfalls on our trip to Yellowstone, but Lower Yellowstone Falls was the most impressive. Situated at the end of Yellowstone Canyon, you can clearly see the golden rocks leading down to the Yellowstone River. It was such a beautiful sight surrounded by snow and ice!

White Sands in New Mexico is one of my favorite places. The white sand against the deep blue Southwest sky looks so surreal. This area several hours south of Albuquerque is one of only a few areas in the world to have truly white sand. The sand is actually gypsum which forms as crystals when water evaporates. This is the high desert and the basin has no outlet to the ocean. When it does rain, the water pools up and then evaporates from the heat and the gypsum which is dissolved in the water forms crystals. Gypsum crystals are clear, but as the wind blows the crystals around they break up into tiny grains of sand. The outside of each grain becomes scratched and just like frosted glass it looks white. Mother Nature is such a wonderful artist!

When we visited New Zealand several years ago, one of the places I wanted to see the most was the Bay of Islands on the North Island. We stayed in Paihia and joined a boat tour out to the islands. This is Urupukapuka Island and it has to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. I like this view from the tallest hill on the island looking down on the bay where our tour boat landed. This place is definitely worth revisiting someday.

I am a big fan of Japanese gardens and one of the features I like the most are the raked sand. These geometric shapes represent waves and islands in the ocean, but I like them because they are so abstract. Abstract art lets the viewer see whatever comes into their mind. I always feel so calm and tranquil when I view these sand gardens and it makes me want to linger and enjoy the moment, so different from our normal, hectic lives!

When I go out shooting I am always try to find interesting patterns and shapes. Often all it takes is to look down in front of where I am standing. I made this image while I was walking on the boardwalk near Old Faithful. In this area there are many geysers and hot springs. This is some geothermal runoff which was frozen after the temperature dropped. I like the lines of this composition and the soft earth tone colors. Mother Nature is such a wonderful artist!

Yellowstone has over 10,000 geothermal features, more than the combined geothermal features in the rest of the world. So it is not surprising that many wonderful geothermal features at Yellowstone are relatively unknown. This is Crested Pool, a hot spring, near Old Faithful. I like the bright colors of this hot spring contrasted against the snow in the background of this image. Yellowstone in the winter is just magical!

Next week we are off to Hawaii. This is the Ala Moana Marina near Waikiki. Last year we stayed near the marina and had some beautiful light in the late afternoon. Honolulu is such a beautiful city!

Next week we are off to Hawaii. This is the Ala Moana Marina near Waikiki. Last year we stayed near the marina and had some beautiful light in the late afternoon. Honolulu is such a beautiful city!

This is the Metro Station at Hollywood & Vine. What could symbolize LA better than this? The column is a palm tree and the ceiling is lined with empty movie reels. Also if you look closely there is a music clef sign on the railing next to the escalator. Someone had fun designing this station!

The most common tree in Yellowstone is lodgepole pine. The Native Americans used these trees to support their tepees and lodges which is how they got their name. Lodgepole pines shed their lower limbs when these branches do not get enough light thus creating very straight, tall trunks. I like this very closeup composition which emphasizes the height of these trees which were so beautiful against the snow.

One of my favorite cities in Mexico is Guanajuato. This is a rooftop view of the city with the dome of the cathedral in the foreground. In the background you can see the colorful houses that line the walls of the canyon surrounding the city. The colors of Mexico are amazing and the colonial architecture is fabulous. Such a beautiful city!

It is not easy to find a good place to shoot looking down on Tokyo, but on my last trip there I was kindly invited to Yoshie Sato's condominium in Roppongi. This is the view from the terrace of her condo. It was such a beautiful sight when the city lights came on and the sky became dark blue after sunset.

This is Obsidian Creek in Yellowstone NP. There are many aquatic plants in this creek which stay green even in the middle of winter. I thought it interesting to see so much green in this snowy landscape. It is such a beautiful place!

This is another shot of the bobcat we saw in Yellowstone. This shot was taken after his failed attempt to catch a muskrat. He seems to be trying to find something else to hunt. He was such a beautiful animal and it was such a thrill to see one in the wild!

On our photo tour to Yellowstone Canyon we stopped at Obsidian Creek. The high water lever killed the trees near the creek which created this eerie landscape. Even dead trees can be quite photogenic!

On our photo tour of Yellowstone we found these dead trees in the early morning. The sun was still at a low angle in the sky which produced very long shadows in the snow. I like the stark lines of the tree trunks and their shadows in this image which seam to radiate from the center.

 When we stayed at Mammoth Hot Springs we joined a photo tour to Yellowstone Canyon. Our first stop was Swan Lake Flats. We were lucky to catch the first rays of sunshine to hit the mountains there. It was such a beautiful sight to see a blue sky above the snow covered mountains. In fact it was the first blue sky we saw after being in Yellowstone for almost one week.

At Old Faithful we stayed at the Snow Lodge. It is such a beautiful building, I just had to take some photos. This is the lobby just in front of the reception desk. I love these exposed beams in the interior and I thought the teddy bear was a nice touch.

We saw several trumpeter swans on our photo tour to Yellowstone Canyon. They are such majestic creatures and the largest bird native to North America. In the summer they breed in Alaska and arctic Canada, but they winter in Yellowstone and often congregate on the Yellowstone River. I like the reflection of the swan in the foreground of this image with the snow reflected in the ripples of the river in the background. It was such a beautiful sight!

Despite the relatively mild weather, we were able to find some beautiful snow at Yellowstone. I just love the curving lines of this frozen over creek bed. The snow looks so soft and sensuous. I also like the small trees sticking out above the snow. These trees are so hardy they can survive winters when they are almost completely covered over with snow!

Despite the relatively mild weather, we were able to find some beautiful snow at Yellowstone. I just love the curving lines of this frozen over creek bed. The snow looks so soft and sensuous. I also like the small trees sticking out above the snow. These trees are so hardy they can survive winters when they are almost completely covered over with snow!

On my recent trip to Yellowstone we stayed 3 nights at Old Faithful Snow Lodge. One morning we got up early to see Old Faithful erupt and this is the image I captured. Unfortunately this was the only blue sky we saw for the entire 3 days. It was an impressive sight though and it is so amazing that they can time the eruptions within plus or minus 10 minutes.

This is the vertical version of an image I posted several days ago. When we were on a photo tour of Yellowstone, we stopped at a grove of trees that had been killed by the rising water level. These dead trees provided a strong contrast to the snow covered ground. I thought this strong contrast had potential to make an interesting abstract so I set my camera to a very long shutter speed and moved the camera up while the shutter was open. It took several tries, but I was able to create several compositions which I liked. I like the soft abstract feeling of this image which can still be seen as a forest with snow covered ground. It is always fun to experiment this way.

This has been one of my most popular prints.  I took this image of the Scripps Pier in La Jolla, CA just after sunset.  I like the leading lines which draw your eye to the end of the pier and also the pastel colors in this image.The color of the pier is very similar to the color of the sand which is also very nice.

In the wintertime the interior roads of Yellowstone are closed to traffic so we took a snow coach from Mammoth Hot Springs to Old Faithful. Along the way we drove through Firehole Canyon and stopped at Firehole Falls. It was a beautiful sight to see with snow surrounding the waterfall. I used a long shutter speed to turn the rushing water a silky white.

This is the third and final image of the bobcat leaping into the river. I shot this as a pan blur so it is not completely sharp, but I like the sense of motion this technique gives the image. Sadly for the bobcat and fortunately for the muskrat, he was not able to catch his prey this time. So they will both live another day in the constant struggle for life in the wintertime in Yellowstone.

This is the second image of a series of 3 images of the bobcat stalking a muskrat. In this image you can see the bobcat stepping down onto the snow next to the river. You can also see the muskrat in the river just above my logo. The muskrat is quite a distance from the bobcat so you can see that it will not be an easy task for the bobcat to actually catch the muskrat.

We joined a photo tour on our trip to Yellowstone and were incredibly lucky to see a bobcat stalking a muskrat. This was the first time I had ever seen a bobcat in the wild so it was a very memorable experience. Today I will post a series of 3 images showing our encounter with the bobcat. This first image shows the bobcat stalking its prey. I think the bobcat looks so intense on its purpose in this image. After all it is a matter of life or death for him and the muskrat.

While the Northeast has had one of the coldest winters on record, this year has been unusually warm throughout the West. When we arrived in Mammoth Hot Springs last week we were very surprised to see almost no snow on the ground. Later we heard that for several days in late January the temperature was over 50 degrees F. The next day, however, when we took a snow coach up to higher elevations in the park we were able to see some very snowy areas. This snowy scene is Gibbons Falls which we passed on our way to Old Faithful. I used a slow shutter speed to create motion blur of the falling water to get this "silky water" effect.

 I just got back from a trip to Yellowstone NP. As we were driving through Montana we had intermittent showers with the sun shining through. These weather conditions were perfect for rainbows and we saw several along the way. I stopped to take this photo near Missoula, MT because I liked the expressway leading directly into the middle of the rainbow. Perhaps it is an omen of good things to come in 2015!

On my recent trip to Italy, I visited Sorrento after Rome. This is the Tasso Square in the middle of town at dawn. I was a bit disappointed that the main square was paved over and very busy with traffic during the day, but it looked much more peaceful in the early morning.

Day 5 of the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr   by the invitation of +Howard Brown .  I nominate +Deborah Sandidge  to join the fun and post for this challenge.  Any HDR images either recent or from your archives would be OK.  Whenever I enter an impressive building, I always look up to see what the ceiling looks like. If I like what I see, I often take some shots looking directly up. This unusual perspective can make some interesting compositions. This image is looking up at the glass dome in the center of Galleria Vitorrio Emanuele II in central Milan. I like the symmetry of this composition with concentric circles in the middle. It is such a beautiful building, but I suspect very few people see it from this perspective.

Day 4 of Round 3 for the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr   by an invitation from +Howard Brown .  Normally I use a tripod when I shoot HDR's, but sometimes that is not possible.  For this shot I tried doing a hand held HDR and it turned out better than I expected.  I will have to use this technique more in the future.  On our last night in Milan we saw Romeo and Juliet at La Scala. It was a wonderful performance and the costumes were amazing. They do not allow patrons to take photos of the performance itself but I was able to take some photos before the performance started. La Scala is one of Europe's premier opera houses and is such a beautiful building.

Day 4 of Round 3 for the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr   by an invitation from +Howard Brown .  Normally I use a tripod when I shoot HDR's, but sometimes that is not possible.  For this shot I tried doing a hand held HDR and it turned out better than I expected.  I will have to use this technique more in the future.  On our last night in Milan we saw Romeo and Juliet at La Scala. It was a wonderful performance and the costumes were amazing. They do not allow patrons to take photos of the performance itself but I was able to take some photos before the performance started. La Scala is one of Europe's premier opera houses and is such a beautiful building.

Day 3 of the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr  by the invitation of +Howard Brown .  I like to use HDR in the early morning when there is a combination of artificial and natural light. This is Galleria Vitorrio Emanuel II in central Milan. The Galleria, one of the oldest enclosed shopping malls in the world, was completed in 1887 and connects Piazza del Duomo with Piazza della Scala. This beautiful art nouveau building became the prototype for many 19th century shopping arcades across Europe and throughout the world. The Galleria's nickname is "il salotto di Milano" which means Milan's drawing room because for many generations this has been the place to be and be seen. I like this early morning image without any people and with the beautiful dawn sky visible through the glass dome.

+Howard Brown  invited me to the #5dayhdrchallenge   to #promotenaturalhdr  .  This is Round 3 Day 2.  I sometimes use HDR in the middle of the day when the light is very harsh because HDR tends to make the shadows less dark and the highlights less bright. This is the garden of the hotel we stayed at in Chianti. Both the building and the grounds surrounding it were just beautiful. I like this view of the garden with a vineyard in the background. Japanese gardens often use this technique of incorporating far away elements into the design of gardens and it was interesting to see this same idea employed in Italy. In Japan this technique is called "shakkei" which means borrowed landscape. In other words the far away landscape is borrowed as an element included in the garden design.

+Howard Brown invited me to do the #5dayhdrchallenge  to #promotenaturalhdr  .  This is Round 3 Day 1.  I often use HDR's when shooting architectural interiors.  This is the sanctuary of the Milan Cathedral or Duomo in Italian. It is the largest cathedral in Italy . (St. Peter's is a basilica not a cathedral and is in the Vatican City, not Italy.) This building was clearly meant to impress anyone who visits and its very high ceiling feels like it is reaching up to heaven. I was only able to take a few shots before the tripod police forced me to put my tripod away, but I like this vertical composition which emphasizes the height of the ceiling. I also like the leading lines of the floor tiles that draw your eye to the altar in the distance. It is truly a magnificent building!

I was truly impressed with the religious mosaics in Ravenna. This is the ceiling mosaic at the Neonian Baptistery and was originally part of the great basilica. It was built in the late 5th century and is the oldest religious monument in Ravenna. It is amazing that this structure has survived such a long time in such wonderful condition.

While we were in Milan we took a day trip up to Lake Como. Lake Como is north of Milan near the border with Switzerland and has several picturesque towns that are well worth a visit. There are many ferries which connect the different towns on the lake. This is a view of Menaggio which I shot from the ferry as we were arriving from Bellagio. On our next trip to Italy I would like to spend more time on beautiful Lake Como.

When we visited Italy in October last year our last stop was Milan. This is the Milan Cathedral or Duomo in Italian which is located on Piaazza del Duomo and is Milan's most famous landmark. Construction on the cathedral was started in the 14th century, but it was not completed until more than 500 years later in the 19th century. The Milanese set out to build an imposing structure at the heart of their city and it is one of the most impressive buildings I have seen anywhere. Milan's Duomo is the largest cathedral in Italy and the 5th largest in the world. (St. Peter's in Rome is larger, but it is a basilica, not a cathedral.) I took this image before dawn so I could capture the square without any people. In this image, I like the designs in the piazza which draw your eye to the cathedral and the beautiful dawn sky in the background.

On our recent trip to Italy we visited Ravenna which is on the Adriatic Sea south of Venice. Ravenna was the capital of Italy in the 5th and 6th centuries when Italy was a province of the Eastern Roman Empire. This is the Basilica of San Vitale which was completed in 547AD when Justinian was the Eastern Roman Emperor. What may appear to be frescoes on the ceiling and walls in this image are actually Byzantine mosaics. Mosaics were popular in the Eastern Christian churches and can be seen in all of the major Byzantine monuments in Ravenna. It is amazing that Ravenna's Byzantine churches have survived more than 1500 years in such wonderful condition.

On my recent trip to Italy we enjoyed driving around the countryside in the Chianti region of Tuscany. Of course Chianti is best known for its wine and while we were touring the region I was on the lookout for photogenic vineyards. After editing my photos this was my favorite Chianti vineyard which I was able to find with some good directions from Terry Eggers. I just love the way the lines of the vineyard intersect with a classic Tuscan villa on the top of the hill. No wonder people say that Tuscany is the cultural heart of Italy.

This is Hofburg Palace, the ancestral home of the Hapsburg dynasty. European royalty used architecture to impress people and this has to be one of the most impressive buildings I have seen anywhere. The original palace was first built in the 13th century and it was expanded many times after that. I got up early so I could shoot it in the early morning light. I like the illumination of the street lights on the palace in this image and the wispy clouds in the sky.

Hawaii is a great place to watch the sunset and what could be better than seeing the sun drop down to the horizon behind some palm trees. I found this row of palm trees at the Place of Refuge on the Big Island. Since they were on the west coast of the island I decided to go back at sunset to take some photos. In this image, I like the silhouette of the palm trees in the foreground and the sun positioned in the middle of the gap in clouds.

Hawaii is a great place to watch the sunset and what could be better than seeing the sun drop down to the horizon behind some palm trees. I found this row of palm trees at the Place of Refuge on the Big Island. Since they were on the west coast of the island I decided to go back at sunset to take some photos. In this image, I like the silhouette of the palm trees in the foreground and the sun positioned in the middle of the gap in clouds.

Outside it is another dreary Pacific Northwest day so here is a photo that should cheer you up and remind you that there is nice weather somewhere if you are willing to travel. I took this photo on our trip to Hawaii last year. I walked out on a jetty so I could get this view of Waikiki and Diamond Head with only the ocean in the foreground. Honolulu is so beautiful. No wonder it is so popular with tourists in the wintertime.

Whenever I travel to a new place, I seek out interesting architecture and take some photos.  This is the National and University Library of Slovenia designed by Joze Plecnik, Slovenia's most famous architect.  Plecnik's relationship to Ljubljana, Slovenia's capital city, is similar to Antonio Gaudi's relationship to Barcelona. Plecnik's architecture literally changed the face of Ljubljana in the early 19th century. A prominent member of the secessionist movement, Plecnik's art nouveau architecture has made modern Ljubljana the graceful city it is today. Isn't this a wonderful space to do some serious research and reading?

One of the days we were in Dubrovnik we drove our rental car up the mountain to get a view looking down on the city. We stopped at many different places and this was my favorite daytime image. I like this view because you can see the entire old town enclosed by the city walls as well as the harbor and the surrounding Adriatic Sea. I just love the contrast of the red tile rooftops against the deep blue color of the Mediterranean. No wonder Dubrovnik's nickname is the "Pearl of the Adriatic".

We couldn't go to Chianti without visiting a winery. This is a view of Castello di Brolio vineyard looking down from the castle on top of the hill. This winery was one of the first to promote Chianti Classico. We did some wine tasting at their shop and it was very fine in deed. I like this view looking down on the vineyard and its buildings. To me, this is such a quintessential view of the Tuscan countryside.

On our trip to Italy last year we stayed in the Chianti region of Tuscany after Cinque Terre. This image is the old medieval town of Radda in Chianti. Chianti is most famous for its wine and the vineyards there are fabulous, but the old towns are also very nice. This area was the border between Florence and Siena when they were the big regional powers. Radda was part of the Florentine Republic and the front line for skirmishes between these two rivals. After Siena was defeated by Florence, Radda lost its strategic importance and became a backwater which allowed its medieval character to survive to the present.

I am a big fan of spiral staircases. This is one I found at a small hotel in Tuscany, Italy. At the bottom of the staircase you can see a table and an oriental rug which is the entrance to the hotel's spa. I like the spiraling line leading your eye to the bottom in this image.

When we had some unusually clear weather in November I made a brief trip down to Portland, OR to shoot some cityscapes. While I have visited Portland before I had not shot the skyline from the opposite side of the Willamette River. I found a great location near OMSI where I made this image. Luckily it was a calm evening and the reflections of the city lights in the river were fantastic. It was such a beautiful sight to see so many different colors reflected on the water's surface!
